Second Samuel 11 Second Corinthians 9
[this is so elementary that:]
2 Corinthians 9:1 For as touching the ministering to the saints,
it is superfluous for me to write to you:
Investigating the crime of the JFK assassination seems to linger on, even to this day; and, the following is a lot of very interesting and convincing evidence:
This is a very action packed 2 hour presentation of LOOK AT ME crime scene details overlooked by those who are as suspect as the obvious perpetrators. MaraDale and I watched this fascinating footage last evening and as I slept on it, ABBA YAH revealed HIS view from above as with the eye of an EAGLE :o)) It’s so elementary! Throughout the entire Holy Bible, ABBA tells us how to live our lives in peace, safely, prosperously, with the joy of family intimacy that only HIS family has — and yet — all too many are quick to “pull-a-fast-one.” The keen eye and investigative wit of Dorothy Kilgallen was extraordinaire! The things that President John F. Kennedy was trying to do for the wellbeing of our nation were extraordinaire!! And yet, both were betraying the intimacy of their own house, spouse, and family — the absolute foundation of rock solid stability. This plays over – and over – and over like the proverbial “broken record.” Who is sneaking around with who? Who is snuffing a snitch?? Who is that masked man in the dark smoke filled room??? Most of us never get close enough to even know they exist; and yet, they are hidden in plain sight! It is not mere coincidence that my daily Bible reading has brought me to 2 Samuel 11 and 2 Corinthians 9 THIS morning.
2 Samuel 11:2 And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.
You know all about this chapter. “A-fast-one,” adultery, murder, and it ends:
2 Samuel 11:27 ... But the thing that David had done displeased YeHoVaH.
ABBA YAH has told us REPEATEDLY how to live LIFE. HE has given us example after example of the blessing of obedience and the curse of disobedience and Apostle Paul reminds us:
2 Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be unto YHVH for HIS unspeakable gift. [the entire Holy Bible, if only we would read it ALL repeatedly without ceasing. AMEN!] Rog (Omer 18)

2 Samuel 8 – 10 2 Corinthians 7 – 8
The ChurchS ! (plural :o) I love it when things pop into focus :o)) Apostle Paul laid it out so beautifully this morning and i hope i can etch my thoughts onto paper, using the simple technology of a pencil :o) Even as Paul (not that i hold a candle to him) is doing so elegantly as he says:
2 Corinthians 8:18 And we have sent with him [Titus] the Brother, whose praise is in the Gospel throughout all the churcheS [plural]; [the “churches” plural, are each made up of many “members,” right? And the Body of Mashiyach is made up of many churcheS, right? see Revelation chapters 1 – 3 where a MENORAH says it all!]
If i may go back to my basic understanding of electricity and the atomic structure, through which electrons travel from atom to atom, as the U.S. Air Force electronics technical school at Keesler AFB taught me in the 1960s, each atom has a centralized nucleus containing the neutron(s) and proton(s) and in the orbits around each nucleus are the electrons. As i understand, only nanotechnology delves into anything smaller (or more basic, and that’s another “can-of-worms” :o). Then, after 4 years in the Air Force, moving ahead to the 1970s, while in college (wrongly thinking that i wanted to become a high school industrial arts teacher) psychology 101 was required and it was fascinating — the way our nervous system works with electrical impulses. Electronics 101 and Psychology 101 seemed to be shaking hands :o)) These electrical impulses, of the nervous system, vary in frequency and intensity; AND, with the advent of street drugs, we synthesized the term “speed.” If we are talking about the tiniest of created atomic substance — connected with each other to make molecules, connected with each other to make amino acids and proteins and on and on — WOW! — Apostle Paul seems to be explaining ABBA’s “eternal” realm in terms of these “created” elements. A few days ago, before getting into Second Corinthians, Paul said:
1 Corinthians 12:15 If the foot [how much more complex is the “foot” than an atom, or protein, or molecule? BIG TIME BIGGER! And yet, “if the foot”] shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:16 And if the ear [each of these individual Body parts are of such enormous complexity that our finite minds cannot conceive! And yet, “if the ear”] shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1 Corinthians 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
1 Corinthians 12:18 But now hath ELohim set the Members every one of them in the Body, as it hath pleased HIM.
“IN” the Body… we find individual “nerves.” Each “nerve” has multiple tentacles that reach out to other nerves; and, the CONNECTING POINT, at which the electrical impulse jumps across, is the “SYNAPSE.”
Each of us are an integral part of our FATHER’s TEMPLE and the late Chuck and Nancy Missler do a superb job of explaining how WE are now The TEMPLE:
If each of us are even just mere nerves in the Body of our Messiah — as i press the SEND key — my impulse jumps the synapse to you and VOILA! Our BODY IS ALIVE!
Have i hit a nerve ? :o)))

2 CAR GARAGE
April 27, 2020
2 Samuel 6 – 7 2 Corinthians 6
Who would park a freshly used manure spreader
In the same garage attached to their house
Right next to their brand new Cadillac?
We have these two “carts” in Scripture
With very specific parking Instructions:
Cart #1 – the manure spreader:
1 Samuel 6:1 And the ark of YHVH was in the country of the Philistines seven months.
1 Samuel 6:2 And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying,
What shall we do to the ark of YHVH? …
and the Pagan priests said:
1 Samuel 6:5 … make images of your emerods [hemorrhoids], and images of your mice …
1 Samuel 6:7 … make a “new cart”, …
NOW! See how the Philistines try to worship the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by
Loading their hemorrhoids and stinking mice with YHVH’s Ark of the Covenant
On a NEW CART
Am I the only one who sees a problem here and how it connects to worship TODAY??!!!
We’ve just seen the “manure spreader” mingled with Truth and here comes our brand new Cadillac:
2 Samuel 6:1 Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel,
This is a BIG STAGE religious hoopla!
And here comes
Cart # TWO — #2… any cleaner? Let’s look:
2 Samuel 6:3 And they set the ark of ELohim upon a “new cart”, …
just like the Philistines did, minus the hemorrhoids
as though this makes their worship acceptable to YHVH
A man — Uzzah — died, slapped DEAD, on-the-spot, by Almighty GOD, for violating how YHVH wants to be worshiped. Does YHVH, our eternal ELohim, change? Not according to the 5 short verses of Psalm 15. (If someone tells you that these “Instructions” were done away with at the cross — HANG ONTO YOUR WALLET! And your LIFE!! — even your eternal LIFE!!!)
When David came to grips with why his new Cadillac stunk, as the hemorrhoid cart parked next to it — in his own Pagan imaginary worship garage — David asked:
2 Samuel 6:9 And David was afraid of YHVH that day, and said,
How shall the ark of YHVH come to me?
2 Samuel 6:12 And it was told king David, saying, …
This is for us ALSO — it is ALWAYS step #1! To seek YHVH and HIS desire. Not our own; and, we, too, are told — even as it is written!
Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
Mark 1:2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send MY messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy Way before thee.
WHERE is it written? WHY are BIG STAGE religions preaching that this WRITING of GOD was done away with at the cross??
It was NOT done away with and sOOn, as with Uzzah:
Yeshua ha Mashiyach, Jesus the Christ, said:
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
To date, the Gentiles have quite totally trodden down everything that David set up in Jerusalem. And, speaking of David, ABBA FATHER spoke to David and to me and to you, saying:
2 Samuel 7:4 And it came to pass that night, that The WORD of YHVH came unto Nathan, saying,
2 Samuel 7:5 Go and tell my servant David [and Rog, and any of MY people who will shema — hear and obey], Thus saith YHVH, Shalt thou build ME an house for ME to dwell in? [ABBA is asking… ARE YOU SERIOUS? You’re gonna build ME a garage?!]
2 Samuel 7:6 Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel [and aliens like me who sojourn “among them”] out of Egypt, even to this day, but [this is our FATHER speaking! Doing WHAT? HE IS saying, “I] have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.
Are we going to WALK with YHVH or
put HIS Covenant in a manure spreader and call it worship?
Apostle Paul is NOT shoveling s#*t in Lubbock with Buddy Holly on the global BIG STAGE!
Nor has Paul come with a different Gospel!
Our Apostle Paul is still telling us the same INSTRUCTIONS as
The Prophet Nathan, as Apostle Paul IS saying:
2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of ELohim with idols? for ye are the temple of The LIVING God; as ELohim hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be MY people.
2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them [park that stinking manure spreader somewhere else! Along with the emrods/red santa clause and mice/bunnies], and be ye separate, saith YHVH, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2 Corinthians 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be MY sons and daughters, saith YeHoVaH Almighty.

NOTHING RUNS LIKE A DEER
(until a rod blows out the back of the engine block!)
April 25, 2020
(day 14 of counting the Omer :o))
Second Samuel 2 Second Corinthians 3 – 4
Let your “fingers-do-the-walking” through the pages of Scripture and your eyes feed your “eternal” Spirit with these delicious Words of TRUTH :o))) Sometimes ABBA’s WORD projects the most delightful movie on the back of our minds and these Bible chapters, this morning, are revving up HIS projector:
2 Samuel 2:18 … and Asahel was as light of foot as a wild roe.
[this guy could run like a deer!]
This guy was hot-on-the-heels of Abner and Abner told him twice to back off the throttle; but, Asahel stayed right behind Abner until:
2 Samuel 2:23 Howbeit he [Asahel] refused to turn aside: wherefore Abner with the hinder end of the spear smote him under the fifth rib, that the spear [piston rod, if you will] came out behind him; and he fell down there, and died in the same place: …
[right there in the field… dead in the dirt!]
Meanwhile, back-at-the-ranch, when our tractor dies in the field, THE Manufacturer’s Repair Manual is our only hope and voila! Apostle Paul is handing us the very REPAIR MANUAL that we desperately need :o)) However, BIG BUSINESS has kept most of us from repairing our own equipment by putting a wall – a curtain – a blindness — a vail between us and the instructions for repair! WHERE, pray tell, do we find the needed repair MANUAL?
L OO kie:
2 Corinthians 3:14 But their minds were blinded:
for until this day remaineth the same vail
untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament;
which vail is done away in Christ.
WHAT is DONE AWAY with IN CHRIST? The VAIL! NOT the Old Testament, as preached by those who want our tractor DEAD in the field and our harvest null-and-void.
BIG BUSINESS [of religion incorporated with government via 501(c)(3)] is making their sneak punch as-we-speak; but, not to worry :o))
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
What I hear Abba telling me this morning, via 2 Samuel 2 and 2 Corinthians 3 & 4, is for me to take that STINKING VAIL off my face and READ The ENTIRE Holy Bible ALL OF IT (including and ESPECIALLY the OLD TESTAMENT, as clearly stated in 2 Corinthians 3:14, which Yeshua came to remind us of as Moses foretold in Deuteronomy 18:15, and Paul is now reminding us of) for the TRUTH, the WHOLE TRUTH and nothing but the TRUTH so help me GOD!
YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. AMEN!
Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted
April 21, 2020
First Samuel 23 – 24 First Corinthians 13
“Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted.” This quote has been attributed to the talented and successful German Field Marshal of World War Two, Erwin Rommel. Often referred to as 'The Desert Fox', Rommel was a master of his profession and often achieved stunning results against unbelievable odds.
David’s “A Teams” (an A team is 2 officers and 10 sergeants of which David had 50 totaling 600 valiant warriors) against King Saul’s THOUSANDS (with ungodly leadership) making this another “David vs Goliath” THEATRE of Operations on the BIG stage!
WHO is in charge HERE?
While King Saul is muscle-bound with military power, David is “floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee”! David has been obedient to YHVH since childhood, even making sure his flock was cared for as he “left the sheep with a keeper” (1st Samuel 17:20), before David departed — David took care of his responsibilities — and this has not changed. David respects YHVH’s anointed! It’s as though we hear the echo of Apostle Paul speaking to David, in First Corinthians 13, centuries before Paul was born! Yet, the reality of the “eternal” realm is mind boggling!! But TRUE!!! Case in point:
David has been dealing with, even fleeing from, his attacker King Saul. The military strategies, here, are nothing short of America’s “Stormin’ Norman” during the Gulf War. Please, for your own reconnaissance not wasted, please take a couple minutes and read First Samuel 23 - 24. In a nutshell, David has been anointed to be the next king of Israel but Saul (the son of Kish) is still YHVH’s living anointed king and David respects that. David is running from King Saul, as Saul feels threatened by David and King Saul is bent on killing David. David and his 50 “A Teams” are hiding in a cave. King Saul does not know that David and his valiant warriors are in that cave and King Saul goes in there to take a nap in this cool dimly lit place during the exhausting heat of the day. While King Saul is sleeping, David’s men whisper to David, “Now’s your chance! Kill him!!” and we read about the integrity of a real Man of GOD:
1 Samuel 24:4 And the men of David said unto him, Behold the day of which YHVH said unto thee, Behold, I will deliver thine enemy into thine hand, that thou mayest do to him as it shall seem good unto thee. Then David arose, and cut off the skirt of Saul's robe privily.
Unless we understand what “the skirt of Saul's robe” is, we only have a very shallow concept of the BIGGER picture. David has basically cut the FOUR STARS off the epaulet of “Stormin’ Norman” Schwarzkopf — United States Gulf War military GENERAL — the HIGHEST ranking person in our nations military, other than the Commander in Chief — the President! Can you imagine?! But the question is: What did King Saul’s “FOUR STARS” look like? Again, looking in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance for the definition of skirt, we find:
From H3670; an edge or extremity; specifically (of a bird or army) a wing, (of a garment or bed clothing) a flap, (of the earth) a quarter, (of a building) a pinnacle: - + bird, border, corner, end, feather [-ed], X flying, + (one an-) other, overspreading, X quarters, skirt, X sort, uttermost part, wing ([-ed]).
This Strong’s definition is defined for us by Abba Papa YeHoVee in:
Deuteronomy 22:12 Thou shalt make thee fringes [H1434] upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.
From H1431 (in the sense of twisting); thread, that is, a tassel or festoon: - fringe, wreath.
A tassel is a tzitzit, as worn by our Messiah and by HIS Disciples and the tzitzit is what the woman with the issue of blood grabbed hold of [today, we might call it COVID-19, ya think? YA! REALLY!!], because: HE had healing in HIS “wings” (tsitziot = plural of tzitzit). And this is fulfillment of Malachi’s prophecy and proof of who “Jesus” REALLY IS and who HIS Disciples really are:
Malachi 4:2 But unto you [including you and me, right now] that fear MY [YHVH’s] name shall the Sun of righteousness [Jesus/Yeshua] arise with healing in HIS wings [H3671 = tzitzit :o))]; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. [until we have the strength of full grown bulls or oxen who lead ahead of the plowmen — ALEPH to TAV! On The WAY, not veering left or right!! But leading as HE has shown us :o))]
Let’s read on, into the next book:
Matthew 9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind HIM, and touched the hem of HIS garment:
Matthew 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch HIS garment, I shall be whole.
“hem” is defined by Strong’s:
Of uncertain derivation; a margin, that is, (specifically) a fringe or tassel: - border, hem. [tzitzit]
HE wore tzitzit.
For more about tzitzit:
Enough about tzitzit and how I tie mine and what the ribbon of blue means and what the number of wraps mean, etc. The tzitzit, that King Saul wore were his insignias of AUTHORITY! David, GOD’s beloved, had remorse for removing this from GOD’s anointed King. My Bible says that “Jesus” “changed” the priesthood and the law:
Hebrews 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
That word, “change(d)” is better translated transfer(ed)
[“transfered” to you and me, who are HIS kings and Priests]:
From G3326 and G5087; to transfer, that is, (literally) transport, (by implication) exchange, (reflexively) change sides, or (figuratively) pervert: - carry over, change, remove, translate, turn.
From G3346; transposition, that is, transferral (to heaven), disestablishment (of a law): - change, removing, translation.
These “laws” are no longer carved in earthly stone but transferred to the Heavenly/Spiritual part of our heart, the HOLY of Holies within this, our, Temple of flesh, and Yeshua told us:
John 14:15 If ye love ME, keep MY Commandments.
First Samuel 23 - 24 is a quick read and a GIANT piece of information for us. Not TMI (not Too Much Information!), but steak and taters for our understanding of HOW to be MEN and WOMEN of GOD :o))) Some love obedience to our COMMANDER-in-CHIEF and some are just rag-tag crackers :o) Ruth was a Gentile Moabitess; and yet, she became a G-I-A-N-T in our Messiah’s lineage because she said:
Ruth 1:16 And Ruth said [to Naomi, Gentile Ruth’s JEWISH Mother-in-Law], Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: ….
The Marriage Supper of The LAMB is another of our FATHER’s Feasts and as with traditional weddings, there is a rehearsal and that is precisely what the Feast of SUKKOT is ALL about!!! YOU ARE INVITED!!! Meanwhile, my “four stars” with the thread of blue remind me of WHOSE i am and WHOSE LAW i obey and this gives me great joy and honor; especially in these uncharted times of enemy attack, as we await The SHOUT of The BRIDEGROOM :o)) Meanwhile, this peep-sight bird’s-eye-view in Biblical reconnaissance is NOT wasted!!! When all is said-n-done — our current temporary enemy has nary a chance! :o)))
YHVH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. AMEN!
